Princess Beatrice of Saxe-Coburg with family

Princess Beatrice of Saxe-Coburg (1884-1966), fourth and youngest daughter of Prince Alfred of Edinburgh and his wife, Maria Alexandrovna (later Duke and Duchess of Saxe-Coburg), shown here with her husband, Alfonso, 5th Duke of Galliera (1886-1935) and her three sons, from left, Alonso (1912-1936), Ataulfo (1913-1974) and Alvaro, 6th Duke of Galliera (1910-1997). Known as 'Baby Bea' in the family, she married King Alfonso XIII's cousin but refused to convert to Catholicism. Alfonso was compelled to take away his cousin's army commission and titles. After spending time at homes in Coburg and Switzerland, the couple returned to Spain in 1912 where Beatrice aggravated tensions between Alfonso and his wife Queen Ena (Beatrice's cousin), openly flirting with the king and allegedly procuring mistresses for him. Eventually, she was ordered to leave Spain once more, although she did return, bravely remaining behind in 1931 after the proclamation of the Spanish Second Republic, to look after the King's elderly aunt.

William Heath Robinson with a character created by him

Photograph of William Heath Robinson (1872-1944), from a piece in the Bystander of 1924 which also included some of his illustrative contemporaries, such as H. M. Bateman and A. K. Macdonald. Each artist had drawn a character suggestive of their style and Heath Robinson is seen here wiht a jovial old lady complete with apple basket and umbrella jumping from his hat. Robinson was a regular contributor to the Sketch, the Bystander and other ILN titles throughout his lifetime. His ingenious contraptions were immensely popular and made him a household name.

Prince Louis of Battenberg with his sons

Prince Louis of Battenberg (1854-1921), British First Sea Lord in 1914 with his sons, George (right) and Louis (Lord Louis Mountbatten). During the first few months of World War I, anti-German feeling among the British public forced him to resign. The Prince had taken British nationality at the age of fourteen and those who knew him had no doubt of his loyalty. Prince George of Battenberg continued on active service and the younger Prince Louis (left) joined him as a midshipman shortly after the Battle of Jutland. When the same tide of anti-German feeling forced the royal family to abandon German names and titles their family name became 'Mountbatten'. Prince Louis of Battenberg was married to Princess Victoria of Hesse, eldest daughter of Princess Alice.
